Thanks to Dr.Sohail who helped me when I was literally not sure whether to continue studying in Ned or not. Being a part of this Scholarship program helped me deal with my financial crisis. Also they do different webinars which are way too informative, they keep motivating us. And Dr. Sohail is always there whenever I have any sort of problem. May God bless him and his family with health and happiness and bring such more generous people in this world.

Interacting with mentors , our seniours, our teachers, attendinding webinars, meeting and interacting with professionals of there respective work feilds is a very healthy activity for any one who will be starting a career. Knowledge is a necessity , extra knowledge and information is an accessory. I think it is really a great achievement of NED Scholars to provide the students such a platform where they can interact with professionals, teachers and students. I just want to say that I have attended most of the webinars arranged by NED Scholars ,related to many different engineering feilds and subjects, and they are were really worth it. Thank You NED Scholars !!

I am a student of final year electrical department, getting scholarship from NED scholars from my 1st year and i found these people specially sir sohail ahmed as my savior from Allah because he not only supported me by means of scholarship but he was always there making time for all of us , providing us all the necessary courses through webinar and seminar, guiding us to get through every difficulty we could face in our career, giving us strength and potential to discover ourselves and not only morally he have supported me so far but when i was badly in need of laptop though we can not afford ourselves , he was the one who provided me laptop so that i can continue my courses easily.. Even when we were having a really hard times due to our personal issues of residence, he was there and supported us in every expect which was not even his cup of tea... i don't even have words to thanks him for all he did and is doing for us.. I just wanna be like him and help others as far as i can.. I am sooo luckiest in the entire world having those people in my life who are my role model.. May Allah protect you and give you ajar in his measures...

I'm Samreena.. From Electrical Engineering department, 3rd year... I am completely speechless about the efforts which NED scholars do for the students.. I don't think any other scholarship donors would be so much concerned about the future of thier students as NED scholars. Specially Dr. sohail ahmed, who is always there for me when i was in trouble or need any sort of help from him, he always listens and do his best to help me.. I am so grateful to Allah that I am blessed to be a part of NED scholars... Which in my views is the beat non-profit organization in the world..Alhamdullillah..

My name is Binish Haseeb. I am from Telecommunication Department , first year. My father is only earner in our family. My father is a shopkeeper and works very hard to meet all the expenses. I wanted to get scholarship just to give relief to my father from my side because it was getting hard for him to manage all the expenses (of house , bills and studies of four ). My grand mother has supported through her pansion ( she has passed away last year) in hard times. My father always wanted us to study well , he supports us so much and wanted us to become doctor or engineer or anything we want to pursue. I have seen my father worrying about expenses and saving money just to submit our fees. I have prayed so much to get scholarship to continue my studies. I wanted to get scholarship because I don't want to quit studies just because I can't afford. I feel fortunate to got scholarship in my first year. My parents and I are so grateful. I am very thankful to all sponsors. Thank you so much Dr Sohail for your support ,mentoring and kind words.

I am studying about the polymer and petrochemicals in Ned university. Ned scholars helped me at that moment when I had fully depressed about the fees for my studies. It helps me financially. Due to their financial support, there is no barrier to my education. It would not have been possible without them. Moreover, it also helps me to give information about the other courses. I'm very grateful for the whole team of Ned scholars who serve me very well.

It's been honour for me that i am the part of such great organisation. The helping hand of NED Scholars is giving the students a new life by providing them the opportunities like scholarships and different technical workshops. The most appreciable part of this organisation is that they are providing these opportunities to the students selflessly.
I pray that Almighty bless them more as they are very sincere to their cause.
For me its a true model of serving humanity.
May Allah give them more success.
Aameen.

Hello everyone.
I am a student of NED university, Karachi. I am here to share my experience with one of the excellent organisation that is NED Scholars. This organisation is providing the helping hand towards students in terms of mentorship , scholarship and by conducting several workshops to provide the students with well equipped education in Pakistan especially in our university. I think that the best part of this organisation is the interaction of the scholars that they keep with their students. As Pakistan is a developing country and it needs well educated personals. NED Scholars is providing us the platform to enhance our skills and to serve our family and our country. I joined NED Scholars in my third year of graduation and it has awarded me the scholarships. As I belong to a middle class family so i had the financial problems to continue my studies. NED Scholars provided me the support that i needed the most at that time. InshaAllah I am am going to be an Industrial Chemist this year and want to study more to help my family and my country as well.
May Allah reward NED Scholars for their generous deeds and give them the courage to continue their mission. Aameen

I am Shahid Hussain . I am the student of 2nd year from metallurgical engineering at NED university.I received scholarship from NED scholars from 2 years. My father salary income is too low and that,s why i am unable to pay my fees. I am thankful to NED scholars for this scholarship.
without any doubt this scholarship will play a key role in achieving my educational dreams. Because of your generosity the financial burden placed on me to pursue my education will be reduced.

This is Mirza Farzeen Baig from Hyderabad I am a student of Urban and Infrastructure Engineering department. I am writing this to share my educational journey and the problems, I had faced up till now, Also to share a immense support from NED scholars which is playing a role of a backbone in the entire family.
I belong to a middle class family my father is a tuition teacher who worked very hard for me and my family while he is a patient of breathing disease and other major disease, When I was in college I did not even think about being enrolled in this reputed university but then Alhamdullilalh by the grace of Allah and my efforts I got 81% in second year exams and starting preparing for aptitude test ,I passed entry test with flying colors and finally become a student of NED university of Engineering and Technology .At the time of admission I paid 39,000 which my father had saved for my educational expenses.
After getting admission it was difficult for my father to bear my expense so I desperately needed someone to support me financially and Alhamdullilah NED scholars provided me enough support so that I can study easily without any financial worries.
Apart from that this organization is simply amazing not only financial support they also provide opportunities to do extra courses, webinars, workshops not only that they insist students to run with modern technology by doing projects fully funded by NED scholars .In simple words they create students all-round personality which are very helpful for growth of struggling society.
Further I would like to thank Dr Sohail who is helping me and so many deserving students and making it easy for us to get professional education, May Allah bless him with success in this world and hereafter and also their whole team of NED scholars.
Regard
Mirza Farzeen Baig
